stated the goal for the radicals is to redistribute income from corporate and affluent america to the poor and low wage earners. do you that by giving folks with not a lot of money entitlements like health care, housing, food and guaranteed incomes. that is the goal of the far left. that is why they want the feds to control health care. in the coming weeks it, will be interesting to see if president obama caves in toed radical movement, there is no question most americans reject the far left philosophy. a new study by gallup says conservatives significantly outnumber liberals in 47 states. only hawaii, vermont and massachusetts have an even split. liberals don't have a majority anywhere. liberal joyces be conversation. that has emboldened the far left. net root folks who held a convention in pittsburgh. they don't much like america. >> we kidnapped. we tortured people. and we even killed people in u.s. custody. torture is a war crime. murder last time i checked is a pretty serious crime. >> why are we in afghanistan? why have we invaded a country? why are we spending millions a
. >> with everybody in america had the provisions that our members have, there wouldn't be a health care crisis. >> reporter: it's like a health care cooperative, a community-based, nonprofit organization owned by its members, a group that uses its strength in numbers to negotiate competitive rates with health care providers. and that's an idea gaining traction on capitol hill. robert burns, a professor of health care management at the university of pennsylvania, said the key to co-ops is size. 20,000 to 50,000 enrolles minimum needed. >> if they're not big enough, then they won't be able to do either of those two things, hold down the administrative costs internally or negotiate good rates externally. >> reporter: even then it may not be enough. do you see health care co-ops as the silver bullet to this debate? >> no. as i told my class last night, it's part of the silver buckshot. >> reporter: so, one of many that needs to be done for health care reform. he agrees, it may not suit everyone's health care needs, but he's at least hoping that it will force americans to think outside the box. >>
